Through lectures and demonstrations, learn to produce professional-quality conceptual designs. Utilizing a home landscape on Longwood grounds, learn to measure and translate measurements to scale and draft a base plan. Get acquainted with design tools and online sources of information that are key to producing practical designs. In a final project, develop a creative yet feasible solution for a given site.
